Single cell recordings were made from movement-related neurones from the precentral cortex of two monkeys, trained to perform a simple lever-pulling task. They were also trained to remain relaxed while the arm was explored with passive movements at different joints, cutaneous stimuli and during the application of two types of phasic muscle stretch… CONTINUE READING
